MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Iraqi government and French oil and gas company TotalEnergies have signed a $27 billion investment deal to develop the country’s oil and gas fields, the office of Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Kadhimi said on Sunday.
In July, Baghdad signed an initial agreement with the French energy giant that involved four major projects.
The aforementioned projects include an increase of oil production at the Ratawi oil field from 85,000 to 210,000 barrels per day, as well as creation of facilities for processing associated petroleum gas and construction of solar power plants.
TotalEnergies, previously known as Total, is one of the biggest oil and gas companies in the world with about 100,000 employees across more than 130 countries.
